to come out with some type of his own statement about where he wants to go with the nsa controversy and the transparency going on with its oversight. >> yes, thomas. we've been working our sources within the administration and on capitol hill. we have a bit of a picture of what the president plans to do. he can go on offense, anticipating, i'm sure, about the nsa leaks and the programs that the intelligence community has been undertaking to collect data and so forth. by going on offense, the president is expected to announce that he has plans to take steps to make reforms to some of those programs. with the intention of bringing greater transparency and to build more public confidence. these will be new steps, and he will lay them out in the specifics, but that's the overarching idea, how to create more confidence when there have been so many questions in the public about what these programs can do, the scope of them, the magnitude, and how to bring about more transparency. what could be declassified? we've seen steps toward that already with some of the details of these programs no
from edward snowden. the report shows the nsa broke privacy rules or overstepped its legal authority thousands of time each year since congress gave the surveillance agency proud, new powers in 2008. "the washington post" says they got a response from an official saying the nsa is a human-run agencies and often times workers find themselves on the wrong side of the line. president obama had a panel of outside intelligence advisers. but that panel of 14 is now down to four people and the white house says last week it's turning to brand-new, and still undetermined outside experts to look over the nsa's actions. there is a special court that's designated to oversee these surveillance agencies. how the nsa went against court orders -- when i see you at 8:15. kyla campbell, ktvu channel 2 news. >>> there's new developments surrounding snoerden. he's accused of downloading materials about u.s. and british spying programs while he was working last year for dell. intelligence agencies say he left dell for a government contractor in march to specifically get access to more top-event files. in
these programs as possible. we have already declassified unprecedented information about the nsa. but we can go further. so at my direction the department of justice will make public the legal rational for the government's collection activities under section 215 of the patriot act. the nsa is taking steps to put in place a full-time civil liberties and privacy officer. and released information that details its mission, authorities and oversight. and finally the intelligence community is creating a web site that will serve as a hub for further transparency. and this will give americans and the world the ability to learn more about what our intelligence communities does and what it doesn't do; how it carries out its mission; and why it does so. fourth, we're forming a high-level group of outside experts to review our entire intelligence communications technologies. we need new thinking for a newera. we now have to unravel terrorist plots by finding a needle in a hey stake of global telecommunications. and meanwhile technology has given governments, including our own, unprecedented capability to m
before this whole nsa story first erupted. is this announcement today in the east room a political necessity for the president? >> i think it is, brooke. i think the president's got to do a better job explaining to the american public why this nsa surveillance program exists. because there are a lot of skeptical people including in his own party among the democrats. why does the united states government need to do all this, go through all these -- have this massive program collecting information on everyone's phone numbers, e-mails. even though there is a process, legislative process, judicial process to make sure it isn't in violation of people's privacy, a lot of americans don't believe that. they're very nervous about it. they toedon't like it. i think the president recognizes and certainly his aides recognize they have to do a better swrjob explaining the necessity of this in the war against terrorism, if you will. i think that's what the president hopes to do. score some points and reassure the american public their privacy is being protected. >> right. wolf and jessica, thank
were using you to either justify the nsa coverage of the nsa program or to kind of obscure human intelligence, assets and saying it was signals intelligence. >> sure. first to fran's point. it is true it is one of many threat streams and one piece of information in a broad mosaic of a collection that the u.s. intelligence community is engaged in on a regular basis but the meeting was significant according to officials and reports in the "new york times" mcclatchy and other outlets because it is where the vague discussion of impending attack was discussed. if you look at the embassy closings around this world it largely matches the people who were on the call according to to our reporting. you can understand why the u.s. government took a broad brush aproechl as for it being their motivations in taking the risk, i can't speak to that. i would say some communications they hold closely. some they take risk on. this seems to be a risk they didn't take as far as other reporters linking it to the nsa and snowden and what have you. it is important to point out the programs disclosed by
, we do so. >> safe to say that we learned about these threats through the nsa program? >> we have some mechanisms where we can track a phone number or an e-mail address that we know is connected to some sort of terrorist threat. and, you know, that information is useful. but, what i've said before, i want to make sure i repeat. and that is, we should be skeptical about the potential encroachments on privacy. none of the revelations show that government has abused these powers, but they're pretty significant powers. and i've been talking to congress and civil libertarians and others about are there additional ways that we can make sure that the people know. no one is listening to your phone call. >> were you surprised that russia granted snowden asylum? >> i was disappointed. because, you know, even though we don't have an extradition treaty with them, traditionally we have tried to respect if there's a law breaker or an alleged law braeaker in their country. we evaluate it and we try to work with them. they didn't do that with us and in some ways it's reflective of some underlying chal
with congress to reform the nsa program that collects telephone data mandating more transparency by the court. creating a team of private citizens including activists to review the program. chuck todd asked president obama if snowden is a leaker or a patriot. here is what he had to say. take a listen. >> i don't think he was a patriot. as i said in my opening remarks, i called for a thorough review of our surveillance operations before mr. snowden made the leaks. >> reporter: now president obama also, for the first time, addressed his decision not to meet with russia's president, vladimir putin on the sidelines of the g-20 summit. a number of factors went into that decision, including edward snowden. he down played tension between him and his russian counter parts. >> i know the press likes to focus on body language. he's got that slouch, looking like the bored kid in the back of the classroom, but the truth is when we are in conversations together, oftentimes it's very productive. >> reporter: now, reaction to the president's new transparency measures came in swiftly before he finished speak
are pointing to last week's decision by russia to grant nsa leaker edward snowden temporary asylum, a decision the u.s. calls disappointing. we have live team coverage on the story and what this means going forward in washington and moscow. first let's start in washington where cnn's jill dougherty is standing by at the white house. jill, this is a clear area of expertise for you. you worked in moscow for many years. what does this mean? >> i think it means that the wheels are coming off this relationship pretty fast, kate. there will be a meeting here in washington tomorrow with senior russian and u.s. officials, but it could be a tough one. there will be no see you in september summit in moscow between presidents barack obama and vladimir putin. state department spokeswoman jen psaki telling cnn's jake tapper -- >> our relationship with russia has been a roller coaster ride at times. >> reporter: the white house does say president obama will attend the g-20 summit in st. petersburg, russia. both men will be in the same room there but so far, no plans for a one on one. the biggest reason for
it is fast and furious, whether it is benghazi, whether it is the n.s.a., you are never getting information. >>steve: some of the president's critics are saying the only reason we have heard about this particular terror threat at our embassies and diplomatic posts throughout the arab world is because in past administrations in the bush years, they never would have made such a big deal out of it. but right now the subtle message is, look, we were able to listen to this particular conversation between al-zawahiri and the guy who runs al qaeda in the arabian peninsula through the n.s.a. program so folks don't feel bad about the n.s.a. program. >> we'll wait and see what happens with this. if there is nothing that happens, we'll have to say you blew contacts, you blew sources and methods. was it to distract us from other issues. you know what makes me maddest of all? where's the media? when i was in the nixon administration, if the nixon administration had not turned over documents, you would have heard about it from every media source. they would have been screaming and crying. in this case th
ann. you might not be concerned about the nsa tracking your phone calls or e-mails but what if they were watching you when you are on your pj's on your couch. the i tech partners unveiled they found vulnerabilities in samsung smart tv's that allowed them to turn on the video's camera without their knowledge. hackers used programs called remote administration tools which can turn it on remotely if it is engaged in a chat session or looking at a web page on the television for example. companies behind the video chat software can and have been forced to cooperate with the government loopholes like the ones uncovered last week could allow the government to spy on you even if you don't use the internet feature. the good news is samsung has reported closed the loopholes in the newer models they have a camera that can be flipped up to the creeling. for others you might want to find a way to block its view to be on the safe side. >> diane macedo, fox news, thanks. >> 45 minutes after the top of the hour the daring rescue of 6 sisters swept away in a kansas river. >> are you feeling

to nsa leaker edward snowden. my next guest said it's the right direction but can't undo five years the president spent remaking the image into one perceived around the globe as weak. fox news contributor linda chavez. thanks for joining us this morning. >> great to be with you. >> i think a lot of people voted for president obama in 2008 the first time with the sincere expectation his election would make america more popular around the globe. that hasn't happened. why? >> it hasn't happened. the president said he was going to remake america's image in the world. i think a lot of people thought because he did have a charismatic personality, certainly the president himself believes himself to be charismatic, he was going to be able to win more friends for america, that america would suddenly be beloved by all. what the president seems not to understand, what is most important in terms of a country's standing is that you are respected not necessarily liked. so the president's effort to make everyone like us i think has made us look weak. >> so it's had the opposite effect? >> that's e
